      No. The "highlight clear" command is not removing the highlighting

      Look at the following set of commands:

      :hi xyz
      E411: highlight group not found: xyz

      :hi link xyz Search
      xyz xxx links to Search

      :hi clear xyz

      :hi xyz
      xyz xxx links to Search

      As you can see, even after clearing the "xyz" highlight group,
      it is still linked to the "Search" highlight group. I expected,
      after clearing the highlight group, I will get the E411 error.
